Performance: Full time. Full effect.
The world is continually changing, but your life never stops-that's why you need all the predictability you can get. That's why the Impreza is equipped with Subaru Symmetrical AWD. It's balanced side-to-side for stability. And it's designed to efficiently route power directly to each wheel all the time to maximize your grip of the road.
All-weather Conditions. Whether it's snow, rain, or even a broke sprinkler head – slick conditions can surprise even the best planners. But Subaru AWS keeps more power routed to all four wheels than some other systems that only react to slippage that has already occurred. So you're ready with exceptional traction and control.
Spirited Handling. With outstanding grip and an exceptionally balanced layout – thanks to its almost perfectly symmetrical design – Subaru AWD helps maximize your vehicle's connection to the road – heightening its response.
Accident Avoidance. When danger steps into your path, the safest route is to step right around it. The trademark traction, stability, and control of Subaru AWD helps you stay safe by staying ready to react.
All-road Conditions. By continually grabbing for every bit of traction possible, and helping react to slippage when it occurs, Subaru AWD helps give you the freedom to tackle or loose road surfaces with confidence.
Burns less fuel. Fuels more fun.
More precise handling. The 2012 Impreza features a redesigned suspension that's honed for heightened steering accuracy and agility. Pillow ball bushings—found on many sports cars—help keep your wheels on track when you take a corner. A double wishbone design rear assembly soaks up the bumps along the way, while keeping you tightly in control. It's also lighter, which helps keep the action behind the wheel lively, quick and fun.
Efficiency In Motion. The Impreza shifts you into the future of efficiency with the advanced Lineartonic® CVT (Continually Variable Transmission).1 This smooth-performing transmission dynamically adjusts to match all your acceleration needs. Because it eliminates the need to shift and helps the engine stay in its optimal rev range, it'll shrink your carbon footprint by taking the fuel-efficiency of the Impreza to new heights. All while giving you great response in every driving situation you encounter.
Control At Your Fingertips. With just a flick of these motorsports-inspired shifter paddles, and you'll instantly engage the manual mode of the Lineartonic® CVT. This system simulates the experience of driving with a 6-speed manual—giving you quick access to more power for passing, climbing hills, or times when just you want a more engaging and sporty driving experience.
Performance: Discover the power of balance.
Subaru Boxer Engine. Balance is control. It's poise and capability. It's power in perfect proportion. Subaru puts performance in balance with an engine unlike any offered by our competitors. The SUBARU BOXER® Engine features a low profile, symmetrical design that puts the weight of the engine lower and in line with the vehicle for better response and control.
Horizontally Opposed Design. The pistons move in 180-degree opposition to each other on a horizontal plane, so each naturally cancels out the vibration of the piston opposite it. Smoother Operation. Step on the accelerator and the revs come on smooth. While there's plenty of power when you need it, it helps enhance your comfort and control.
Durable Construction. The engine's flat design is inherently rigid, and reduces the amount of vibration that “V” or inline engines-with more upright pistons-are subjected to during operation. Increased durability. An engine subjected to less vibration lasts longer. It's no wonder 96% of Subaru vehicles built in the last 10 years are still on the road today.
Low Center of Gravity. The flatter profile and perfectly symmetrical design of the engine block, and the fact that it sits lower in the chassis, make the overall vehicle more balanced and nimble versus other designs. Greater Agility. The vehicle responds more quickly to changes in direction, which gives a feeling of tightness in turns. And it's more likely to feel stable during maneuvers, giving you an increased feeling of being in control at all times.
Drives small. Lives big.
Versatility. It glides through crowded city traffic as easily as it packs for a road trip. The interior of the all-new Impreza offers 6.4 more cu ft of space in the 5-door and 3.0 cu ft more in the 4-door.1 And we've done it with only a nominal increase in the wheelbase. More room for your passengers, your stuff and your life with the same compact design.
Cargo Capability. Not only is this the most spacious Impreza ever, but it's also exceptionally flexible and easy to load. 60/40 split-folding rear seatbacks allow you to easily load longer items even while carrying passengers. The wide rear opening of the 5-door lessens the effort of getting larger items in and out. And the 4-door sports a trunk with 12.0 cu ft of cargo space—amongst the most spacious in its class.
More Passenger Space. Thanks to a new, cabin-forward design, the 2012 Impreza gives every passenger more room and more comfort. Those in the back will have two inches more legroom, and everyone will have more shoulder and headroom. Not only is it more spacious, but a wider step through at each door makes it easier and more comfortable to get in and out.
Cargo Flexibility. With a wide variety of cargo-carrying accessories the Impreza will open a new world of possibilities. And each Impreza comes with cargo hooks in the back to help secure your gear. Also standard is the underfloor cargo area storage, which gives you a safe place to stow items away from prying eyes. Opt for the Impreza Sport and get integrated roof rails that make it even easier to haul bigger items to your favorite destinations.
We look at safety from all sides.
Passenger Protection. Front, front-seat side and side-curtain airbags2—standard on every Impreza—surround outboard occupants in the event of a crash to help prevent injury. The new Impreza also features active headrests to reduce the effect of whiplash, and a knee airbag that helps protect the lower extremities of the driver in an impact.
All-around Protection. Our Ring-shaped Reinforcement Frame is exceptionally strong for maximum resistance to impact energy, while its unique configuration helps divert that energy away from occupants. The frame of the Impreza is now composed of more high-tensile steel for even greater strength and lighter weight.
Exceptional Control. The traction and balance of Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive and the stability of the SUBARU BOXER® engine help provide you with the control you need to react to and avoid hazards. Every Impreza also comes standard with VDC electronic stability control, which can detect a loss of control and intervene to help keep you on your intended path.
Stopping Power. Powerful and reliable vented disc brakes are teamed with advanced technologies to help you stop short of danger. Antilock brakes help make sure you don't lose traction, and the advanced Brake Assist system helps ensure maximum pressure is applied to the brakes as quickly as possible in an emergency situation.
Sips fuel. Relishes every ride.
AWD + 36 MPG. Smart insights have given the Impreza exceptional mileage, while keeping it more capable than almost anything in its class. Refined aerodynamics cut down on wind resistance. And the available Lineartronic® CVT combined with a redesigned SUBARU BOXER® engine make the most of every drop of fuel while increasing responsiveness.
Love with no limits.
Our connection to our owners and the life they live is forever unfolding at Subaru. Select any of the tabs below to see how.
Partners That Care. Subaru has spent decades building relationships with dozens of organizations that believe in building a cleaner, greener, and more hopeful world as much as we do. Through our year-end Share the Love sales events we've raised nearly 15 million dollars over the last 3 years to distribute amongst charities such as ASPCA, Habitat for Humanity, National Wildlife Federation, Meals on Wheels and Boys & Girls Clubs of America. We look forward to seeing even more love from our generous customers in 2011.
Cars That Last. Life is too important to slow down with a car you can't rely on. That's why we build each of our vehicles with the highest standards of manufacturing, with designs that are inherently tough and with engineering that emphasizes quality and consistency. This commitment is why 96% of all the vehicles we've built in the last 10 years are still on the road today.1 It's also why Subaru vehicles keep their value so well. In fact, Subaru was named the number one automotive brand for residual value by ALG for 2010.
Owner Benefits. Every Subaru comes with 24-hour roadside assistance for 3 years or 36,000 miles. And that's just the beginning of our commitment to our owners.

It offers the only mechanical and maintenance plans backed by Subaru of America, Inc., and because we've been backing them for more than 25 years, they're agreements you can trust. Your dealer has full coverage details. Subaru Equity Shield™ GAP can help pay all or most of a possible difference between what your insurance company covers for your Subaru that was totaled, or stolen and not recovered, and what you still owe in payments. It will even cover your deductible for up to $1,000.
Subaru Life. Get out there. Get going. Get to where your life is lived. Whether you're taking a new turn or simply taking a break, we build every Subaru to help you take it all in. With Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive, Subaru owners have the stability and control to drive with confidence where and when they want. Smart features help them do more of what they live for, and award-winning safety means they can do it with assurance. That's the joy of having a car that you don't just love to drive, but one built for life. And we think that's why owners always tell us, “I love my Subaru.” Badge of Ownership One way Subaru owners express their love is with a unique badge that reflects their interests and passions.

Environment: We try not to waste a thing.
Zero Landfill. In 2004, Subaru of Indiana Automotive, Inc. (SIA) became the first manufacturing facility in the U.S. to reach zero landfill status and be designated a wildlife habitat. And every Subaru plant continues to use green suppliers, reduce manufacturing wastes and cut CO2 emissions.
Wildlife Habitat. In 2003, Subaru of Indiana Automotive, Inc. became the first automotive assembly plant to be designated as a Backyard Wildlife Habitat by the National Wildlife Federation. SIA's 800+ acres serves as a home for a wide variety of animals, including: whitetail deer, rabbits, Canadian geese, mallard ducks, squirrels, beavers, coyote, snapping turtles, frogs, red-tail hawks, blue heron, and the bald eagle.
Partial Zero Emission Vehicle (PZEZ) Status. Because clear skies are just as important as clean landscapes, the Impreza meets the rigorous standards required to achieve Partial Zero Emission Vehicle—PZEV1— status. It achieves such cleanliness and efficiency without the negative environmental impact required to manufacture many vehicles with battery-based drive systems, and without compromising performance and versatility.
Green Partners. We've spent decades building relationships with those who believe in building a cleaner and greener world as much as we do. That's why we support organizations such as Leave No Trace, which promotes responsible recreation.
